live. you don't mean a cold strike of course. it's two of his brothers one of the wives. tells all to you about the horrors of war in iraq the city of mosul which he's been depicting of as it comes as a national releases a damning with fault on civilian suffering during the coalition led liberation of the city. u.s. media reports the russian government tried to provide trump with compromising information on hillary clinton a year ago but misses out the fact the informant had no links to the kremlin.
run high. police advise to abroad in case a terror attack happens while they're on holiday. or appear in court of human rights up hold some belgians ban on the full face veil in public the country is among the group of european nations which outlaw the clothing. international live from moscow studio with me. welcome to the program. some five thousand eight hundred civilians may have been killed by iraq and u.s. led coalition forces in mosul in the last four months that's the latest estimate from human rights organization amnesty international in its new report the group says pro-government forces relied upon imprecise weapons during the liberation of mosul and ignored the growing number of civilian deaths it also claims pro baghdad
troops appear to have repeatedly violated international humanitarian law something that may in mind to war crimes amnesty international collected testimony from those displaced it says more than six hundred thousand people were forced to flee west. mosul. and here are some of the latest pictures from as you can see vast parts of the city lane ruins with smoke still rising above some of the buildings earlier we discussed the diocese actuation mosul with modern warfare from the iraqi project of unicef. i was about we can have a go in the central hospital of western most of. fun people are coming that they're coming there with fresh wounds and one of the image that touch me and it still remains on my. head is this woman who probably four or five children into the hospital. all of you know had with the
blood and she was so traumatized how young one year and a half all was on her lap and she was trying to press his arm to stop the bleeding fighting in specifically in western mosul was in attendance extremely intense with a lot of damage and destruction people and specifically children have been extremely terrible price on the fighting in mosul they have witnessed or the nightmare yes they have been quite a cost of civilians and infrastructure damage the horrors of war were also witnessed in another way by artist and illustrated george butler who was in bed with iraqi forces in the area previously he's worked in syria where he traveled several times to document the conflict this time he depicted those who were
displaced from west myself. media has largely praise coalition efforts to liberate. even blame alone for the devastation of the city we spoke to george butler about what he means to his latest trip. what was your first impressions when you when you arrived and became embedded with the iraqi special forces what i found i guess was huge destruction to. civilian life and as ever it's the civilians that. are losing out more than anybody
and the ones with the stories and other ones that i as an illustrator and as an artist i guess are trying to do to get justice to what was the most difficult almost striking thing that you that you saw there something that really made an impression on you on one side a pile of piles of rubble these houses been destroyed in an airstrike and this. came out and bought me a chair to sit on i was touring and just begins to tell a story and isis fighters had fled the mosque next door during the fight a fire fight they'd come into his home where his family were living and then the iraqi army had called in an airstrike which it so often does in mosul of course killing but also killing his mother two of his brothers and one of their wives this attack actually happened on the same day that there's an infamous attack hundred sixty people were killed in mosul you know the willingness to talk about it and the
openness and the normality of it was perhaps the most extraordinary thing and that is the fact that i was so regular i guess is a difficult thing to accept you what was before to capture this in your drawing but is this something you really occurred all over the city a lot of the damage that you see is not done by not done by car bombs or firefights but by a strike the story of people civilians being caught up in that it's obviously very sad but it is happening in mosul over the last few months memory. you will take away from from your time in mosul the one you know impression that really will will stay with you i think it's always this well i suppose it's always been the same and that is. that it is the majority of civilians losing out. hugely to something they have no control of over the lack of just a kind of very vulnerable in the moment and the lack of choice and the thing i
guess it was sticks to me is that the drawings i'm doing are done with permission the best drawings i did were the ones that i was very much emotionally attached to the kind of desire to draw to do justice and draw exactly what was in front of me the issue of liberation has also been touched upon by russian foreign minister it came to an informal summit of the organization for security and cooperation. has the details. do you remember all that was with the suffering of civilians. one minister or the mind of the aleppo coverage you want to see that there's already been a well to build the refugees. the city of mosul is maybe times more then the number of people that left to specially organized humanitarian corridors according to the russian foreign minister the departure of civilians from
mosul was been tedious disorganized not chaotic which according to the minister allowed for all of could have led to more civilian casualties here's what else sergei lavrov said on the hypocrisy by some of the western politicians and media if you're going to talk you know double standards in the media less than the leper was liberated with far less loss of civilian infrastructure the most so of course we're glad not always who is losing maybe the price of victory has to be high but in this case the reason i need to put on an innocent face and not to see the log in your own eye. this was foreign minister taking part in the european informal security summit and as it is often the case during such events was the center of attention which often leads to some very awkward moments are you going to be looking for you to go to grow your. future. that.
you have to go with. the russian foreign minister sergei continues. with the summer season in full swing in europe british holidaymakers have been asked to watch this video well how to survive a terror attack before booking left flights and paroled. the video includes scenes of a hotel under siege and a clear reference to the deadly terror attack on president.
that. i took to the streets of london to find out if such tapes cost dot clouds over holiday. british police have now released a video showing british terrorists how to react in case they get caught up in a terrorist attack becomes a safe route to get out now this is the best option it are just people to think of the instructions in the same way they think about safety videos everyone is away if we're going to need a plane you get a safety briefing. and if the plane come down and that's what we're trying to seal the chances of. this just giving you the knowledge of what to do. if you call talk and such and start kind of what's your response to that kind of latest video. pick street into history are you going on holiday there. may be quite scared to go forward really at work right there all trying to scare religious terrorists because
i know the training is quite pretty frightening missing at the different it would make me worry about traveling the kind that we all stay like everything is about terrorism and stuff but i just want to stress you what's going on day to kind of relax not to think about potential terrorist attacks i think it's a bit scary if you could just travel in the haven't a change in what's going to happen next feel less safe everywhere there's a fire or a terrorist attack every day so it's like you do worry generally more about even trying to get out to get you to do your daily shop sometimes can be worrying kind of a new reality to how you know it is here but if you're safe. would it change your plans this kind of thing watching this kind of video i. wouldn't you know. it wouldn't deter you from going away. just to do with the. police say there's no specific intelligence that british holidaymakers are going to be
targeted but they still want you to watch the film for packing your beach bags it's not only people having to adapt to the terror threat insurance companies for example now offering special policies that cover terrorism they're also varies counterterrorism courses and terrorists are viable guides being offered to the public form of british army intelligence officer chris hunter says modern day terrorism has created a new reality would definitely living in a different worlds the you know the rise in islamist extremists terrorism is unprecedented and i think you know just looking at them with domestic perspective when i was growing up in the you know in britain. in the early eighty's i remember the provisional ira threats but they used to give coded warnings they didn't actually want to kill civilians with islamist extremist terrorism it's a completely different mindsets and completely different threats so we have to take the threat seriously and we have to be prepared to either forego some of our civil
liberties or you know we say ok we'll just live with the terrorist threats and keep getting killed. at the very same time a muslim radio station in the country broadcast twenty five hours of al qaeda lectures calling for a holy war it's license ascents been referred to by the communications regulator ofcom eman f. and at speeches by our lackey who was killed in a u.s. drone strike in yemen in twenty eleven he was a radical american muslim cleric of yemeni origin the u.n. security council states he was a leader recruiter and trainer for al qaeda in the arabian peninsula is also suspected of having had links to the nine eleven hijackers. a man a family says it was unaware of the radical content of the speeches chris hunter again says communities have to do more to tackle the promotion of radicalism twenty five hours of evil hatred and vitriol and it once i'm on it and
crucially you know i'm not for monitoring all broadcasts but somebody gave these people a license presumably if they were broadcasting illegally the real issue with this is that there are so many different mediums through which terrorists can actually propagate their message any developed country in the world not going to have the resources so actually stop it in its tracks to monitor all these publications so there is a huge emphasis and moral obligation on the communities in which all of this media is actually being propagated next we look at the latest case of u.s. lawmakers who seriously think russia is meddling in american affairs.
here's what people have been saying about redacted in the night with us actually just full on awesome the only show i go out of my way to launch you know a lot of the really packs a punch at least yampa is the john oliver of hearty americans do the same we are apparently better than blue best. and see people you've never heard of love redacted tonight my president of the world bank go take. me seriously send us an e-mail. seems wrong but don't blow just don't call. me. yet to shape out just to add to it and gain from it equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground.
welcome back to the program belgium's ban on the full face niqab in public doesn't violate any rules that's according to a decision by the european court of human rights the ruling comes after two women tried to get overturned his charlotte depends. well this case was brought by two women a belgian national and a moroccan who said that it was their choice to wear the kneecap this is the veil covering which covers everything but their ice and that because of that they span had actually in furnish their freedoms and they said that the law was discriminatory but the european court of human rights disagreed saying that however controversial the ban was it was necessary in a democratic society and it said it was necessary to guarantee that he cygnus of living together now other countries in europe have also said that they are considering a band with politicians for
a course europe now supporting the idea including germany's chancellor angela merkel says. interpersonal communication which plays a crucial role. that's why the true face veil is not appropriate and should be banned wherever legally possible. we oppose the full body varial not just the burka but also any of the veil that hides the eyes it's not something that belongs to our open society to show your face is part of communication systems and that's why we urge everyone to show their face so. to me it's a symbol of female enslavement it's a vision of women that we have to approach now several other countries have already instituted a ban on a full fail covering in the public areas that schools hospitals government buildings such as in france in two thousand and eleven where women who go out and
wear a full fail covering with a. french nationals tourists facing a fine while those who force women to wear a full covering could face a fine of up to thirty thousand euros and time in jail in the netherlands m.p.'s have already back the idea of this yet it's not become law but european countries are not the only ones that have instituted a ban or are considering it the african country of chad which is a muslim majority country actually a ban on the full face covering back in two thousand and fifteen and that was following two suicide attacks in the country and they said it was necessary to prevent terrorism in. the names trump and russia never seem to be out of the headlines but now is the president certain that the spotlight is turning on its own concerns a meeting he held with a russian in the lead during his father's election campaign well we can cross live to. a new york has been staying across this story caleb story it's been circulating
for several days now but jr has just released a statement on the details please well yes it began with allegations from the new york times about a meeting which took place in june of two thousand and sixteen between donald trump jr jared cushion our and a russian a lawyer now the new york times cited confidential government records saying that this lawyer that had met with the two of them was somehow connected to the kremlin and now donald trump jr has come forward he's released a statement saying that there was no meaningful information given at the meeting and furthermore he's actually released a chain of e-mails between himself and the intermediary who set up the meeting now also the lawyer has come forward and says that she had no idea what the meeting that took place was supposed to be about she had not been informed in the lead up to the meeting and that she does not work for the russian government this is what she had to say. you have the impression it appears that they were
going to be told some information. about the d.n.c. how did they get the impression that's was between you. knew he didn't is. now when asked about this at the press briefing white house spokesperson sarah huckabee sanders replied by pointing out that the democratic national committee collaborated with forces in ukraine in order to carry out research during the elections this is what was said by the white house spokesperson. if you're looking for an example of a campaign coordinator with a foreign country or a foreign source look no further than the d.n.c. who actually coordinated opposition research with the ukrainian embassy and no one
in this room to my knowledge really had a big problem with that. at this point it seems that paranoia about russia is very widespread in the united states we recently heard a call from two congressmen who are actually calling for an investigation into what they're calling russia's propaganda war against fossil fuels alleging that somehow russia is trying to hurt the american fossil fuel industry this kind of thing has become very widespread and in this report i look a little bit further in depth into this question. you've been watching mainstream american television lately you've probably noticed a recurring theme former cia chief john brennan is connecting the dots between russia and wiki leaks a lot of connect the dots information as you said the dots that connect the dots to get connected back with russia connect the dots russia did it it's a game of connect the dots first find something that you do not like and then somehow blame russia for it and we're not just talking about hillary clinton losing
her guaranteed presidency back in two thousand and sixteen are you a fan of donald trump's energy dominance plan if you are then the environmentalists who are protesting against fracking a controversial shale drilling technique are part of the kremlin conspiracy if you connect the dots it is clear that russia is funding u.s. environmental groups in an effort to suppress the domestic oil and gas industry specifically hard really cracking. and on the other hand if you're an environmentalist don't you know that putin is the mastermind behind the controversial keystone pipeline. are you worried about the right white nationalism right wing extremism.
and on top of that the occupy wall street protests can be traced all the way back to russia's secret security services and also moving give to practical examples of how the russians have been engaged in our political system one was an anti fracking campaign that the russians seemed to be engaged in another one was the occupy wall street movement that the russians were engaged in as well sure the financial crisis low wages income inequality had nothing to do with it we all know that people were protesting back in two thousand and eleven because they got orders from moscow right. but. and a public trust in the mainstream media is shrinking it's because someone is feeding them fake and false information guess who what about false information the real fake is being put out by russian is russian propagandists russian operatives well then surely impossible in a world with and there are. no bag of tricks or something to try to do russia has
become the world's scapegoat for everything and it's this weird witch hunt that like now if something doesn't go someone's way and international business or elections or whatever the automatic finger pointing goes to russia i guess it's just the automatic excuse now especially with this fracking story in particular like ok they're saying now that russia is involved with. powering environmentalists to stop fracking it just doesn't make sense so from hacking to fracking it's all because of the kremlin whenever something goes wrong you can always say that the russians did it it never seems to get old caleb artsy new york. had one of the world's most dangerous professions stay with us.
